Flopcast 573: You Had an Enya Record?

Flopcast episode 573! It’s another concert report, as we leave the house and creep down to Rhode Island to see Flopcast favorite Joan Osborne! And since Joan’s big hit album (and that song – you know the one) came out way back in 1995, we’re looking at the other albums

Flopcast 572: Hey Hey

Flopcast 571: The Super Dictionary – From A to Chicken

Flopcast episode 571! 1978’s The Super Dictionary attempted to teach kids vocabulary using DC Comics superheroes.

Cigar Nerds Podcast: Wicked

Flopcast 570: Have Some Back Hair, Crunch Some Birds

Flopcast episode 570! We haven’t reviewed a weird school book club magazine from the 80s since… oh wait, it was three weeks ago. Thanks for your patience. This time we’re looking at a 1984 issue of Maniac, a short-lived Dynamite-type magazine aimed at a slightly older audience, with an added twist of Mad-style

Flopcast 569: Maple Fools

Flopcast episode 569! A quick springtime mixed bag of weirdness: April has arrived, and Kornflake is celebrating with a sugary holiday of her own making, Maple Fools Day.

Cigar Nerds Podcast: Fungus Among Us

Flopcast 568: I’ve Been a Dirty Dog

Flopcast 567 Big Bill Blitz

Flopcast 567: I Know Where You Stuff Things

Flopcast episode 567! It’s about time for another Dynamite magazine review, but to mix things up, we’re looking at a different (but eerily similar) magazine called Winner. A single issue of Winner was sold through school book clubs in 1982, and it’s essentially a sports-themed version of Dynamite. Our discussion includes: John McEnroe’s hair; Chris Evert
